<p>Have an lp which is originally not a mip. when solving with simplex or network (using cplex), it takes about 1 Minute. When adding dummy integer 0..1, then cplex treats it as mip, solves the root-relaxation within a few seconds, and because solving the mip then is trivial, the problem is solved this way very fast. This is almost always the case.
So my question is: How does mip parametrize the root-relaxation, so that it is so much faster? I use both for mip root-algo and the continous problem the same solver (e.g. network, or simplex), so I would assume the root-relaxation in mip and the solution of the continous case should take the same time. Or does mip use (some internal) callback of the network/simplex-solver to stop the relaxation, when the solution is "good enough"? From where does it know then what's good enough (know the theoretical objValue)?</p>enSat, 06 Jun 2020 07:31:52 -0000
